En Ka announces 
2016 En Ka Street Fair 
theme and dates!


The 2016 En Ka Fair, titled “A Hometown Treat,” arrives in downtown Winchester and the En Ka Fairgrounds on Friday, May 20th and Saturday, May 21st

“The annual En Ka Street Fair is great family fun and a hometown Winchester tradition not to be missed,” explained Andrea Burbage, 2016 Fair Co-Chair.  “Enjoy the exciting rides, games and food. Browse for book deals and shop for baked goods, bargains and jewelry.” 

“Some fun new additions to “A Hometown Treat” are treats such as a fortune teller, new games in the games tent and other delicious treats like popcorn, candy apples and even double cheeseburgers,” added Margaret O’Connor, 2016 Fair Co-Chair.  “Enjoy the hometown feel of the En Ka Fair where you bump into friends, neighbors, teammates, and family at every turn!”

This year’s poster was designed by Tori Mortenson, WHS class of 2012 and current Penn State senior.

The En Ka Street Fair has been a tradition in Winchester since 1934, and is the primary fundraiser for the En Ka Society, a volunteer women’s organization in Winchester.  ALL Fair proceeds go back into the community, through grants awarded to local non-profit, civic and charitable organizations.  For more information or to volunteer at this year’s fair please contact us via email at fair@enkasociety.org.



En Ka Society Gives Grant to Winchester Housing Authority

Winchester Housing Authority recently received a grant from the En Ka Society.  The WHA Palmer Street and Westley Street Tenant’s Associations were awarded funds from the En Ka society for the replacement of furniture in common rooms, the purchase of planting to enhance current landscaping and monies to offset the costs of transportation, entertainment and celebrations of the joint associations.  En Ka also gave funds to support the tenant led WHA Green Team in its effort to raise awareness among residents of energy conservation and the implementation of the Green Teams recommendations for the installation of  “Lights Out” reminder stickers and weather stripping in each residence.
